    Excerpts from her CBS.com Survivor: Philippines bio page:


    "Pet Peeves: Complainers 
    3 Words to Describe You: Driven, creative and charming. 
    If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
    1) I would bring a book to distract me.
    2) I would bring a pen for writing. 
    3) And, I would bring a notebook to write on. 
    Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati – she is as charming as I am. 
    Why You Think You’ll 'Survive' Survivor: I bring social skills and team work. I am a motivator. I will also bring a very positive energy. 
    Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I will bring my 'A' game! I am strategic, I am athletic and I have an ability to persuade situations to my favor. "


    From her EW.com interview, by Dalton Ross:

    "'I will win Survivor because I'm charming and bring a lot of sass to the table,' says Abi-Maria. (I'm not exactly sure how sass helps you win, but whatever.) Abi-Maria is actually coming to her Survivor party a few years late. 'I was supposed to be on Tocantins,' she explains. 'However they thought I was going to have an advantage over everybody else because I am from that area in Brazil.' As if the sass did not give her advantage enough!"
